Get ready for our 24th season of the Airdrie Festival of Lights!  Be sure to watch for updates throughout the year.

We would like to acknowledge that the Airdrie Festival of Lights takes place on the traditional territory of Treaty 7, and that the City of Airdrie is part of the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.

Situated in the heart of Nose Creek Park in Airdrie, AB, we are Western Canada’s largest, free, outdoor walk-through Christmas Light Display.

In 1996, the Airdrie Festival of Lights Society (AFOLS) began with a group of local residents committed to putting Airdrie on the map.  That group grew over the years to become the Airdrie Festival of Lights Society, which has continued to operate the Festival.  The Festival Society is an independent body that manages and operates the Festival with the help of hundreds of passionate volunteers.  The Airdrie Festival of Lights has always been committed to providing an affordable, family friendly Christmas Festival of Lights experience for the people of Airdrie and Southern Alberta. The Festival is suitable for all ages, while at the same time providing a venue in which other non-profit organizations can raise funds for their activities.

The Airdrie Festival of Lights Society depends on the donations of visitors like you to keep the lights on and to keep admission affordable for everyone. During your visit, we encourage cash donations at one of our three brightly colored Toy Soldier Guard Houses to help Keep Us Glowing.

Funds are also welcomed all year round.
